About Karine and Thierry

Karine and Thierry are originated from Amboise but spent a few years in London before returning to their home place.

They wanted to share their passion for the Loire Valley, and in 2002, they seized the opportunity to buy a 17th century townhouse in the most renowned street of Amboise, rue de la Concorde, directly facing the Royal Castle.

Karine is an interior designer and carefully renovated the Villa mixing tradition, charm and authenticity, without any compromise on comfort and equipment.

Thierry is the owner and manager of a Travel Agency, specialized in organizing “a la carte” tours in the Loire Valley.

Karine and Thierry purchased this apartment in 2002

Why Karine and Thierry chose Amboise

Villaconcorde is located in Rue de la Concorde, renowned as the most beautiful street in Amboise. Originally build in the 17th century, the Villa is part of the town heritage and used ot be the Notary's house at the beginning of the century.

What makes this apartment unique

'Wow ... I didn't realize Villaconcorde was so close to the castle !' is the usual comment of our guests when they arrive. It's in fact difficult to put it in words but you are virtually at the very door of the Royal Castle, which used to be connected with the house by underground passage 350 years ago...Not just 'a view on the castle' but the feeling that you belong to its history.

Because of its prime location, VillaConcorde will allow you to just walk to some of the main attractions such as the Château Amboise (of course !) but also Clos Lucé, the last residence of Leonardo da Vinci, and many other places... You will also appreciate the walking distance to the pedestrian streets, excellent restaurants, numerous cafés, boutiques and the local products market.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Beautiful apartment (no2) was the highlight of our stay in France. Comfortable, well- appointed and in such a fantastic position we could not have asked for more.

Theirry and Karine were more than accommodating in welcoming us and explaining everything to make our stay comfortable.

Our 2 boys ( aged 7 and 9) loved being so close to the Chateau of Amboise and they begged for replica swords and had many battles on the grassy area across the road, right below the castle walls.

Everything was in walking distance (Markets, Wine caves, Restaurants, Close Luce, Loire River) and we made several day trips out to Villandry, Chenonceau and Loches.

Highly recommended.

Cozy

  • 3 of 5

The property is not spacious, but is well organized and the location allows for easy exploration of Amboise. All the appliances were in working order. We had a problem locating the property because we did not receive a map from the owners and our GPS became confused. There could be more light in the combined living/dining room, particularly over the dining table. The owners were readily available and helpful.

Magical apartment in Amboise

  • 5 of 5

This apartment was one of the most magical parts of our trip to France. It is like something out of a fairytale. It is not only right next door to the castle, but it is charmingly furnished and so comfortable it felt like home. On our last night there we could hear a concert in the town square with the windows open and just loved being walking distance from everything. Audrey was so nice and helpful. We loved Amboise and my daughter said this was the best part of our whole trip. We would stay here again in a heartbeat next time we are in France.

Authentic 16th Century apartment in the heart of beautiful Amboise/Loire Valley

  • 5 of 5

My family of 3 teenage boys, my husband and I travelled in the Loire Valley for 3 days in July 2017. We stayed at Karine and Thierry's gorgeous apartment in Amboise. It was on the first floor and had 2 bedrooms (double with ensuite and bedroom with 3 single beds for the boys), full kitchen, open plan living/dining and laundry facilities in the kitchen. There was internet. The neighbourhood was very quiet and peaceful. The apartment is immediately across a quiet lane from the extraordinary Amboise Castle, the resting place of Leonardo da Vinci. The apartment was beautifully furnished with a tasteful combination of authentic 16th century charm and modern décor. The kitchen and bathrooms were new.

Amboise was a breath of fresh air after 10 days in Paris. It was untouched by modern architecture and quiet with a gorgeous town centre/square surrounded by fabulous restaurants. Karine met us at the apartment and went through apartment's devices with us and gave us great advice about visits and dining. From the apartment we visited Chambord Castle, Chenonceau Castle, Villandry Castle, Amboise Castle and Clos Luce. The apartment is perfectly situated to get to many of the beautiful Loire Chateaux. We would absolutely stay here again if coming to the Loire Valley.

Best part of our trip to France

  • 5 of 5

It has taken me too long to submit this review as we stayed earlier in the year, and all I can say is that our fondness for the VillaConcorde has just grown with time. As we look back over out 2 week stay in France, although all was great, it was our 1st few days here that were the absolute best. The accommodations were perfect for our family of 4. Our son and daughter shared one room and my wife and I took the master. All beds and linens were very comfortable and we appreciated having 2 baths. Karine was very accommodating and I would strongly recommend availing yourself to the wines available for guests. The location is fantastic, we loved being steps away from the village and looking out at the castle everyday! If I have to nitpick, the only drawback I would mention would be the trash service picking up along the street early in the AM on one morning, but occasional outside noise is a frequent trade off for being in town. I will say that I am a discerning customer and very particular in my lodging and in all I cannot recommend VillaConcorde high enough. When we return to France we are sure to stay here even longer.
